It is no secret that Winton Woods City Schools prioritizes providing nutritious meals for all students. From creating a Nutrition is the Mission meal distribution bus to implementing a new menu of fresh fruits and vegetables for elementary students’ daily snack time. These are a few of many reasons why the department received the No Kid Hungry Emergency Grant from the Children’s Hunger Alliance (CHA) and the GenYouth Covid 19 Emergency School Nutrition Relief grant from the HC Schott Family Foundation. These funds will support child nutrition and meal distribution. Also, for the third consecutive year, the district received the Breakfast Champion Award for demonstrating collaborative and innovative school breakfast practices.
“Thank you to the Children’s Hunger Alliance and the HC Schott Family Foundation for your generous donations,” said Winton Woods Director of Child Nutrition Mark Docter who is creating new ways to engage students' practices so they will become habitual. “The goal is for our students to develop their taste for fresh foods, fruits, and vegetables. We know food is something we need everyday to perform at our highest level. The hope is these habits will stay long after they graduate.”
